Florida is home to a number of betting possibilities for both land-based and online gamblers. Legal online betting options are available in Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) and Horse and Greyhound Racing. Traditional and Tribal casinos, ’cruise’ casinos (cruising to ‘nowhere’), jai alai betting and horse racing betting at the tracks dominate the realm of land-based betting in the state of Florida.
Presently, online sports-betting in Florida is not a possibility, however, given the state’s attitude with other forms of gambling and already with some operating forms of legal online betting, it can’t be too long again before the State’s lawmakers begin to seriously consider it as a viable option once more after the latest legislative push for legalization in November 2019.
Look for the state’s Tribal casinos to lead the push to legalize sports wagering and possibly even online sports betting after a potential initial uptake in their bricks-and-mortar casinos.
